JVC Americas will consolidate its U.S. operations, combining three U.S. sales companies and its U.S. service company into one unit, effective April 1. A company spokesman said the move will include the elimination of about 15% of the U.S. workforce, including open positions that will not be filled. Sales organizations will continue to operate as before.
The JVC Americas division companies being combined include:
• JVC Company of America, a sales division selling consumer market TVs, camcorders, audio products, accessories and recording media products;
• JVC Mobile Company of America, a sales division selling car audio, video and navigation products;
• JVC Professional Products Company, a sales division selling professional cameras, security and display products; and
• JVC Service and Engineering Company, the service division for all three U.S. sales companies.
